$250.000 Bail for Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma

Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma has been charged and is now on $250.000 bail. The Chief Justice maintains he did no wrong. The Chief Justice surrendered to the police to face the charges following losing his appeal at the Privy Council.

The media stood outside the home of the Chief Justice in Fairways Maraval awaiting the next move. At 12:45pm a car came up the driveway of the CJ's residence and a few moments later the car sped away with the Chief Justice and his wife inside.

Chief Justice Sharma was then taken to the Fraud Squad headquarters where he was processed. He then left for the Port of Spain Magistrate's court where the charge of attempting to pervert the course of public justice was read to him.

The police claim he committed four acts in a bid to secure a favourable ruling for former Prime Minister Basdeo Panday who was subsequently convicted on all three counts of failing to declare a London Bank account to the Integrity Commission.

The charge against the Chief Justice was laid indictable. Bail was then fixed at $250.000. The matter was adjourned to January 5th 2007.
